Had the most amazing family get together (multi generation). The guides were phenomenal for laying different options for the varied group and Jackie went out of her way to make a great experience for the kids (which means parents all had a great time!!) Could not recommend enough. Love love love. And right in our own back yard in Canada.

Our Purcell family very much enjoyed hosting you over the summer. The scenery is always dynamic and ever changing. Guests are amazed how much Alpine wildlife can be spotted!

A great escape for anyone wanting to unplug and get back to things that matter like spending time in the outdoors, great food and good company. The lodge was surprisingly well appointed and comfortable - amazing when you think every book, piece of furniture, wine glass, etc. arrived there at some point via helicopter! I can't wait to go again!
